Radisson Hotel Group has announced the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation project at the Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel in Stockholm.
The refurbishment is one of several projects at the group’s hotels across the Nordics and has been completed as the Swedish property prepares for its 35th anniversary.
Located next to Stockholm Central Station on Vasagatan, the Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel has undergone a complete renovation overseen by Spanish architectural studio Proyecto Singular. The project involved the property’s 459 guest rooms, 15 meeting rooms and communal areas such as the lobby and bar, the Stockholm Fisk restaurant and the atrium area.
Guest rooms have been updated with bright walls, panels in dark wood and new light fixtures. They now feature Chromecasts to allow guests to stream audio and video to their in-room TVs.
In the meeting and events area, flexible spaces have been updated with technology such as ClickShare, which allows guests to connect wirelessly with any device to Smart Boards with interactive screens and whiteboards. The venue can host up to 150 people for meetings and events.
Meanwhile, the High cocktail social club on the ninth floor can accommodate 150 people and features panoramic windows with views of the city.
Tom Flanagan Karttunen, area senior vice president of Northern Europe for Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Our aim is to always improve the guest experience, which is why we have invested so much in the Nordic region. So far, we have completed refurbishment programmes at, among others, the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Oslo; the Radisson Blu Hotel, Tromso; the Radisson Collection Hotel, Royal Copenhagen; the Radisson Collection Hotel, Strand Stockholm; and now the Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel, Stockholm. The hotels look better, the food tastes even better and the service has been raised to yet another level.”
Last month, Radisson Hotel Group launched its new meetings product, which offers automatic carbon offsetting and aims to reduce single-use plastics and food waste.
